use a cup of water and keep them cool. dip them about every 10 seconds or so depending on how much pressure you are putting on the bit. if you do this 1 will get you through the whole job. are you useing a air powered die grinder or a dremel?

yes, they are getting too hot. bur bits have to be kept cool or they just wont last. keep them cool and they last forever. are they fine tooth or more corse. for aluminum you want more corse of a bit because the aluminum will "gum up" in the bit if it is too fine.

I notched my entire block using one of these
i would think that worked better then what i got.. i think i got fed up ones from ebay they stoped wearing out with the water but they still snap in half..... im gonna go looking tomorrow and see if i cant find any at a store somewhere

any ideas as to a store that might sell them? because there not at walmart and the like

i used the round sanding bits for the dremel.. it worked perfect. you might go threw a couple sand paper thingys, but all you do is slide them on the bit, and good to go..

if you are good with the grinder you can use something like wd-40 to help cut. It is what i do. It seems to help the bit cut better. Might be the heat issue as well. just though i would add.

i think my problem is that i bought some fine tooth bits that are crappy rejects from ebay. i think what i got is more for etching and detailing like engraving then trying to grind cast and aluminum

im gonna hit up sears or somehting tomorrow and buy a bunch of different things and see what works best.
